    is 2 gig enough for a send notebook that would be used for web surfing? how about the 11 macbook air vs ipad 2 for web surfing?

    what is the best companion to a 15 macbook pro?

    Not sure what a "send notebook" is, I'm assuming its a typo (second?), regardless, yes to 2GB is enough.

    I prefer the MBA, but lots favour the iPad.

    You need to narrow that down, what do you use the MBP for, what do you see yourself using a companion device for, I'm assuming web surfing figures prominently due to the other questions, but supplying a little more info might get better answers to this one.

    I had your dilemma. I have a 27" i3 imac and wanted a laptop/portable machine that i could use round the house/in bed. I tried an ipad but i find them so awkward to use having to hold in hand, type in the other. Yes, I tried the case on it as well but it just wasn't the right angle.

    I since got a 2010 13" air, very nice, so much so my girlfriend downgraded from her 15" pro to it and I then....got an 11" air and i don't regret it for a second. It looks tiny, but you'll be surprised how easy going it is. Starts up rapidly, everything is sharp and snappy, and there's plenty of screen space, not to mention the wow factor when people see it!

    base model of 11inch air should be good enough for browsing and streaming.
